What kind of information you are looking for. He is eating fine, no rock itching or any thing similar. No rapid breathing and swimming all around. He is one month old in the main tank and kept one month in the QT.

I haven't tested the water for say three weeks now. Will test them in an hours just to provide as much information as I could. But I know for sure that temperature is 27C (80.6 F) and ph is 7.97

Edit: tank is 125g (8 months old)

Last water change was 3 weeks ago. Usually I change water every 10-14 days about 15-20g. Siphon first and then water change and test the next day.

nitrates are probably high. which would stress the fish and cause ich potentially.

Tested ammonia, no2 and no3 using 3 testing kits.

Ammonia= 0.5 mg/l, 0.25 ppm
No2 = 0.5 mg/l, 0 ppm
No3 = 100 mg/l, 80 ppm (this is the problem i guess)

Btw, I checked my tank logbook, last water change was 5 weeks ago. man days past so fast ><

nitrates should be below 20. start doing water changes Id say 50% to start. and that ammonia shouldn't be existent. watch that
